Organic Skincare Benefits
What are the benefits to you and your skin and the world of using Organic Skin Care Products as against traditional products?
Firstly, you are avoiding all the harmful chemicals that penetrate into your system through the skin. You know how well skin patches work – well skin products penetrate the skin as well, together with any chemicals in them.
In fact, some say putting chemicals on our skin or scalp may actually be worse than eating them. When you eat, enzymes in the saliva and stomach break down what’s ingested and flush it out of the body. However, chemicals on the skin are absorbed into the bloodstream without any filtering. Just imagine what the cumulative effects of long-term use may do.
With some of these skincare ingredients linked to cancers, allergies, neurological disorders and reproductive issues, it’s really time we started reading labels on everything we buy.
We have already blogged about the chemicals to avoid in our blog ‘Toxic Beauty’ so we won’t repeat ourselves here. If you need a refresher just go to: https://beyondorganicskincare.com/toxic-beauty/
Secondly, not only are you avoiding chemicals but you are actually feeding the skin as nature intended. Nature put everything we need on this planet. Think how you usually find dock leaves growing close to stingy nettles – so the cure is next to the sting! Products that are close to nature are absorbed and tolerated by your skin so much better than synthetic ones. Your skin will lap them up and will start to develop a healthy glow.
The Dark Secrets Of “Fragrance”
Also the synthetic fragrances found in most traditional products could have almost anything in them. As perfume is recognised as a ‘trade secret’ the manufacturers do not have to declare what they contain, they merely have to put on the ingredients label ‘fragrance’. This loophole is very disturbing. Natural and organic products only use essential oils. They may not smell the same as traditional potions – but they are far, far, better for you.
Organic Manufacturing Processes Make A Big Difference
It is not just the raw ingredients that are so much better for you. The processing and manufacturing is also much cleaner and more earth friendly. It is a ‘soft’ manufacturing process and certainly has no irradiation of the end product or the botanical ingredients. The products are also Fair Trade. Then, further down the chain the packaging is recyclable and also earth-friendly. What’s not to like?!
Organic Skincare Helps Our Planet
Thirdly using organic means a better planet. It means higher levels of animal welfare, no GMO, lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment – this means more bees wildlife!
You are choosing a better world as well as a healthier body when you choose organic.
